Ankrum Cemetery


Location: Millwood, Jackson County, WV

Directions: From Ripley, take Rt 62 west to Rt 2 (about 9 miles), turn left on Rt 2, cross bridge over Mill Creek, turn left on Evergreen Hills Road (2nd road on left), drive about .7 mile, There will be a church on the left, the dirt road on the right directly across from the church parking lot goes back to the cemetery which is behind the house. The caretaker, Mr Roush, lives in the house, and he mows the cemetery on a regular basis. Four generations of his family are buried there. I wish every cemetery was cared for with such love and respect. The cemetery is on a slope and continues down the hill quite a distance, but there are very few markers although Mr Roush said he's been told the back section is full of graves. It's a lovely, peaceful place.
